Solving Enterprise Mobile Access Challenges

A true solution does more than just check boxes on a list of functional requirements

In a recent blog post, I talked about how geofencing could be used in an enterprise setting to ensure compliance with local regulations or restrict an application’s functionality when a user is away from the office. Geofencing is a great piece of functionality, especially when dealing with mobile enablement/BYOD scenarios but no one feature can make a solution.

A true solution does more than just check boxes on a list of functional requirements. It addresses a real-world issue and provides the platform, the context – and yes, the features – necessary not just to solve a problem but also to give the enterprise additional value.  At Layer 7 Technologies, our customers count on us for solutions to their toughest challenges around security, identity, integration and governance of applications exposing data to partners, mobile devices, the cloud and the Web. That’s why I’m pleased to introduce our new solution brief for Mobile Access.

Many of our customers cater to consumers and have mobile initiatives (and public apps) geared toward the general population. But secure mobile enablement of an internal employee population is often even more important, as those employees need to interact with (and modify) corporate data that isn’t open to the public. Whether mobile devices are provided by the enterprise or are of the bring-your-own variety, the exposed apps and data need to be managed effectively.

Layer 7’s Mobile Access solutions focus on exposure of APIs to developers – public, partner or private – using the Layer 7 API Portal, and runtime enforcement of policies defined upon those APIs using the SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway. While the products can certainly check a lot of those functional boxes – developer onboarding, API analytics, OAuth, geofencing, WebSockets support, caching, throttling and many more – the complete solution is what makes our customers successful.

This solution brief focuses on three customers – an airline, a health insurer and a telecom company – that use Layer 7 solutions to solve real problems. In each case, the business was able to see real value from the apps and APIs exposed to partners and employees. Take a look and see how these solutions can provide value to your enterprise.
